 NO VERY DISCOURAGING REPORTS  . From South Africa.  New York, November 20.���Reviewing  the situation in South Africa under Sunday morning's date, Mr. Ford, the London  correspondent   of   the    Tribune,   says:  There  is ][no fresh break in the chain  of  British communication  in  lower  Natal,  and the detached links are in closer touch  with one  another  than  they  were two  days ago.     No important raihvay bridge  has   been  destroyed  south  of Estcourt,  and no Boer raiders have  been  reported  near   Pietorinaritoburg.     The  fresh do-  tails of general Hildyard's reeounaisanee  show  that  tliere  was   a spirited  night  attack, with a successful bayonet charge,  upon      the . ���> Boer      position',       which  wits      held       until      daylight,      when  its abandonment was forced by quick-firing'   guns.     General  Hildyard's  detachment, while outclassed in artillery, is not  closely  invested,  and  he  has  a body of  provincial cavalry for effective scouting.  Barton's  command  at  Mooi River  is iu  communication   with    Pietermarit/.burg  and has been  reconnoitring the  enemy's  position.    Littleton's force is lower down  and has been  strengthened from  Pieter-  marit/.bnrg.    The latest  reports received  from Durban at  midnight indicate that  there were ho Boers south of Mooi River  and   that  reinforcements  were  steadily  *    moving up the rail.vay.  Tliere are no signs of alarm at the Avar  office over the situation in lower Natal,  and the officials evidently believe that  the raiders will not go further south and  that Clery's. column will be in motion  early in the week, with the line carefully  guarded at all important points.  Various explanations   are  offered for  general .Joubert's mysterious manoeuvres.  One is  that  he  has sent   several commanders southward, with orders  to destroy   raihvay  bridges   over    the  chief  rivers    and    entrap    detachments   and  trains  wherever  possible.     These  commands were directed to remain in   touch  with one another, and to harass  the advance of tlie British commands  by  cutting in behind them and  breaking their  communication.    Another theory is that  lie hoped  to  draw  out   general White  from his entrenched position by  reports  that the investing force had been  weakened, and lure the garrison  into  a series  of  ambuscades.     Military   men at   the  clubs last night, were confident that geueral. Joubert's plan, whatever its motive,  had  been  thwarted,  and    that  general  Clery would have little difficulty in massing his column at Estcourt iii the course of  of a few days and advancing to Colenzo.  This view seemed  justified by theeonfi-  dence and  unconcern of leading officials  ofthe headquarters  staff.   The advance  will be  difficult, and  must be conducted  with extreme caution,  since  there is so  little cavalry for systematic scouting. One  explanation offered  for  the  lack of cavalry was  that, geueral  Buller expected  general White  to send  out his mounted  force as  soon lis Clery's column should  reach   Coienso,   but    this    wa.    hardly intelligible.   The   truth  seems to be  that    only    a    small     force    of    cavalry  has   arrived   at   Cape   Town, aud  that  even general  Methuen's division is  inadequately   served    in    tliis    respect.  Twelve cavalry regiments out of thirty-  one in the  British army have  been  ordered, first and last, to South  Africa, exclusive of the Household cavalry brigade  But apart from general White's troopers  and   a   small  force  of lancers and  mounted infantry with general Methuen,  or appi'oachiug*Durban, the bulk  of this  division is still at sea.   Official neglect to  put this  cavalry^ force  on earlier ships  seems to be a-legilimate-point-of-criti-  cism. l  A wild rumor tliat both Kimberley and  Mafeking* had tbeen relieved served tho  purpose ofc selling a late edition of the  papers last night, but as it came by way  of Delagoa Bay it is unworthy of credence. General Methuen's advance probably has been ..resumed ' northward, but  several military critics are still predicting a sudden manoeuvre eastward into  the Free State.  Commandant Groebler at Colesburg is  reported to liave ac^ed upon secretary  Reitz's hint, aiid arrested two British  subjects as hostages for-the safety of a  colonial DutchfuaiLwhoisnow a prisoner,  suspected of a treasonable offence. This  retaliatory measure is evidently meant as  an assurance to disloyal Dutchmen of  Cape Colony that fchoy, can rebel against  the crown without'the risk of being shot  for treason.  Not even the splendid gallantry of the  Guards has restored British equanimity,  which has been jj-Jfaken up by the evidence  that the war has not been conducted in  an effective and scientific manner. Complex as South African affairs have often  been, there has'neyer been a web so intricate as the - p.-*-e<jen*t military;.situation  in Natal. Because they are puzzled and  perplexed, Eng]^_yij5Bij are irritable and  critical.  , ' ���*'')' ,'  One of the, "ministerial organs gives  warning that the fall'of Pietermaritzburg  will be followed by an outbreak of national feeling' against certain unnamed  commanders, aud Vanity Fair is already-  directing-the sarcasuas of the West End  against Ibtd Wolseley. Englishmen had  not expected their army to be outclassed  by the Boors, in,-field artillery, and they  v have read with amazement and anger  ''the reports that the Boer raiders aie  shelling British   camps   in  lower Nata.

Explanations that tho progress of the  relief column in Natal has been attacked  aud one detachment after another isolated from lack of cavalry requisite  for effective scouting, and that the victory of the Guards could not be followed  up to full advantage from the same cause,  is read with impatience. Everyone is  asking why the dragoous and hussars  were uot on the first and fastest ships  seut to the Cape, along with the best  field artillery aud rapid-firing gnus available. There is a general conviction that  the military staff has been not only singularly ill-informed respecting the Boer  armaments, but has lacked mobility in  adapting its own system to the tactics of  the Dutch generals, which might easily  have been forecast by superficial students  of the short war for independence twenty  years ago.  The Liberal leaders entirely missed the  mark last night in taking up the politic  consequence of the war after the close of  hostilities, instead of discussing in a critical spirit the methods of conducting the  campaign. Englishmen are not talking  about conditions of peace and the expediency of magnanimity. They realize  that the Dutch are making a strenuous,  obstinate and brilliant defence against  the resources of a mighty empire, and  that the war is likely to last a long time,  and that peace is not in sight. They also  perceive that while the mobilization of  the reserves has been highly successful,  and the stupendous undertaking of shipping an army corps over six thousand  miles has been conducted with great  efficiency, the staff has been hopelessly  behind the times in not following the example of the French and German armies  in introducing the quick-firing artillery  of great range; and, moreover, that a  strange mistake was made in not employing a larger force of light cavalry in  coping with au irregular army of mounted  infantry remarkable for mobility.  The Liberal leader, who was himself a  victim of the snap judgment of the commons on the inadequate supply of cordite, might easily have directed a destructive fire upon the government which  has gone into a war without being fully  prepared with scientific machines and approved tactics for conducting it with success. "That is a" question whieh would  turn thousauds of votes if the election  were held next week. There is an uneasy feeling that British valor is sacrificed because the army is outclassed in  artillery, and that the uation is on exhibition as being behind the times, not in  details of organization, bm> iu scientific  apparatus of modern warfare.  w  *  IV  *  *  *  *  <_>  *  *  *  v_>  Hi  *  ��_>  ill  *  tli  Or  i*  111  *  iii  tli  vi.  iii  tli  tli  tli  *  ti.  ili  lll  til  111  111  *  Hi  ****************************** 5*****t*******t**+*******S***$r*^  DIARY OF THE WAR.  THE BATTLE OF BELMONT WAS A  Splendid Victory.  JN*raw York, November 26.���The World  publishes the following dispatches from  its special correspondents in South  Africa :  " Belmont Battle Ground, Cape Colony,  November 24���5 p. m.���General Methuen  has won a splendid victory. The storming of the Boer positions on the_ hills bythe three troops in the face of a withering fire was superb. The Guards brigade,  the Grenadiers in particular, swept up a  steep hill in grand form. The Northum-  berlands suffered severely from the Boer  marksmanship, which was accurate and  deadly, but their behavior was magnificent. The engagement began at daybreak yesterday, the division attacking a  very strong Boer position east of Belmont. Firing began at 4.15 a.m. and  lasted until 3.30 a. in., four hours' firing.  At the end of that period the burghers  had been utterly routed, retreating  toward the north in great confusion.  They threw down their guns and ran and  were met by a bayonet charge. The  British losses, including the wounded aud  tlie missing, foot up to 226. Fifty Boers  were taken prisoners. None of their guns  were captured. They had one Norden-  feldt iu action. It is reported that there  was treacherous use of the white flag by  the Boers, one of them holding up the  flag in his left hand, while with the other  he shot and killed lieutenant Brines.  *  iii  Oi  Or  tli  tli  *  tli  Ui  ill  tli  tV  tli  111  111  tli  tli  111  iii  tli  tli  t_>  tli  tli  iii  Oi  tli  tli  tli  tli  tli  tli  *  tli  *  tb  tli  iii  ill  tfe  tli  *  *  tli  tli  Oi  tli  tl>  t_>  tli  *  tii  tii  tli  tli  tli  tli  tlr  tli  tii  *  tli  tii  tii  tii  ill  tii  iti  *  td  ill  tii  tlr  lb  tli  \h  \  TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10.���  Kruger issues his ultimatum.

St. Johns*., Newfoundland, November  25.--Governor McCallum today called  upon fisheries minister Morin to resign  from the Winter cabinet, premier Winter  having demanded his resignation, alleging  that internal differences existed. Mr. Morin has previously declined to resign on  the premier's demand, asserting that it  was unjust. The governor explained that  Mr. Winter was responsible for the request, and expressed his personal regret,  while thanking Mr. Morin for his valuable services. Mr. Dawe, minister without portfolio, resigns also, as a protest  against Mr. Morin's treatment. Messrs.  Robinson, Shea, Carfcy and Pitts support  premier Winter. The government party  in the legislature is divided, some supporting the premier and others Mr.  Morin. The ministry will be certainly  defeated when it meets the house.  Great r political     excitement    prevails.  Betreated Without Beplyinsr.  British Camp, Mooi River, Natal, November 24���2 p.m.���General Joubert's  nephew is commanding the Boer forces  which have cheeked here the advance of  the British reinforcements on the way to  Ladysmith. He has the reputation of  being a determined fighter. The Boers  were seen advancing in numbers northwest yesterday, and the British troops,  considerably reinforced, turned out  promptly. The artillery took up a strong  position and opened fire, the Boers retreating without replying. Twenty-  three shells fell in the village yesterday,  only two-bursting. There is no con-  firmatioh- of the report of a fight at  Ladysmith on Sunday. One official dispatch from, general White, dated says  the situation there isunchanged.  No Thoughts of Peace.  New York, November 26.���The London  correspondent of the Times says that no  thoughts of peace enter the minds of  either officials or the soldiers in the field  is sufficiently proved by the circumstance  that at the present moment the utmost  energy is being displayed in organizing  ac Aldershot a final army division of unusual   strength,   probably of  over  3..,-  000 men, with a view to their  early dispatch to the seat of  war. Part of this division will  have   to   be   drawn   from   the militia,  1 am told, and after it has been sent we  can have no regular troops worth speaking of beyond a few recruiting sergeants  left in this country. Another 10,000 is  also being sent from India, and should  all these troops be poured into Africa,  we shall have an army there from first to  last of more than 130,000. This probably means an expenditure from ��1,500,-  000 to ��2,000,000 a week. It may be  a smallerysuni if we are lucky in the  facilities and the health of men, cavalry  horses and baggage animals, but will be  well to count the larger in preparing estimates of the cost of the war. Up to  now, the nation lias not given a single  calm thought to this side of the question,  and the time for reflection is yet some  distance off.  The Default of a Manitoba Town.  (  The special assessors appointed to examine into the finances of the city of  Br-uidon have now made their report.  The total assessable value is declared to  be $1,920,076. Tlie general .'expenditure'  in the city cannot, it is considered, be got  below $52,588, exclusive of debenture interest. The receipts of the coriwration  from other sources than taxes amount to  $14,162, leaving $38,420 to be raised by  taxation for  geueral  purposes.    The debenture debt   amounts   to ��� $508,053, of  which $92,553 was expended upon a court  house.    The latter  sum  is secured upon  the building, the rents from which about  equal the charge of the debentures.   This  leaves $505,500 of  unsecured debt.    It is  suggested on  behalf of the corporation  that special legislative permission be obtained to increase  the taxation up to 25  mills on the   dollar of the assessment.  With that   power   the  corporation see  their way to replace the unsecured debentures by a new issue of bonds redeemable  in-fifty years,  with  interest on a sliding  scale to average 3 per cent per. annum for  the whole term.  How the Maine Was Sunk.  New York, November 26.���The World  today  publishes  a  letter from  Havana  stating that United States officials, after  months of secret investigation, have discovered that the battleship Maine  was  blown up by guncottou torpedoes placed  in the bay for that  purpose.   The gun-  cotton,  700 pounds  of which was. used,  was sent from Barcelona to admiral Man-  terola, commanding the port of Havana,  and was either stolen from the magazine  where  the stuff was- stored,  or taken  away with the knowledge of the officials  in charge.   Admiral Monterola's records  will    undoubtedly   show the   names of  his     subordinates     who      had     direct  control       of       the      explosives,      and  in      that      way      the      identity     of  the authors and executioners of the plot  to destroy the Maine may be discovered.  Two or, three men  were engaged in the  destruction of the Maine.  A steam launch  of Spanish make, now used by the United  States  government   in   Havana harbor,  conveyed the two torpedos, according to  the new evidence, to a point within a few  feet of the berth  of  the Maine, aud anchored them.   The  torpedoes were kept  in position, by means of  buoys floated  eleven feet  under  water,  ten feet above  the anchors  used  to  prevent them from  being swept away.    The torpedoes were  exploded by contact with the keel of the  Maine as she swung at anchor.  A Beport That is Not Credited.  London, November 26.���A special dispatch from Durban, dated November  24th, says the Times of Natal has received  news, by way of Delagoa Bay, that both  Mafeking and Kimberley - have been relieved. It is not only improbable, but it  is discredited by a special dispatch from  Cape Town, which indicates that the relieving force pushed forward after the  -battle of Belmont. If this be true, stir-  riug news may be expected shortly, _as  the Boer.s are in force at Modder river  and .Spytfontein.  THE LONG RANGE KRUPP GUN  Compelled the British to Betire.  Pn-JTKRMAHiTziwKG, November 24.���  10.30 p. m.���After an exciting ride and  favored by a heavy storm, Mr. Amery, a  correspondent of the London Times, arrived at Mooi River from Estcourt last  night, guided by u farmer. lie passed  unnoticed within 600 yards of two Boer  camps. ��� Ile-reports-that-on Wednesday  night the West Yorks, the East Surreys  and the Durban volunteers marched iu  the direction of the Boer lines at Willow  Grange, and later the Borderers joined  them. The troops wore out all night, and  at.dawn advanced almost within charging distance. Tiie Boers discovered them  and rushed up two hills some distance.  They received volleys, but .succeeded in  withdrawing the long range Kriipp gnu.  The Boer position was held by the British for .some time, but eventually the  British had to retire, as the Kriipp gun  got an accurate range, though the shell**  did no damage. The British guns were  out-ranged. Even tlie naval gun was  out-distanced by one or two thousand  yards. In the early morning the Mounted  Infantry and the Imperial Horse joined  in the action, which lasted till noon.  Then, the Boers having gradually fallen  back, geueral Jlildar ordered a retirement, having attained hit. object. The  British suffered much, owing to the rain  and to the fact that they had no food  since the previous day. The British loss  is reported to be three killed and between  30 and 40 wounded. The Boer loss is unknown. Thirty horses were captured by  the British.  Two armed Germans have surrendered,  and were brought into cam].. They say  they escaped from general Joubert's command, Avhich was nearly three thousand  strong, and was marching on the highlands. They were comniundered (pressed  into .service) at Johannesburg, and say  they are tired of the war. They allege  that the Boer.s have no commi.s&iaiute*.  and are starving.  The report still prevails that general  Joubert is either wounded or killed,  which may account for the great amount  of raiding and looting, the Boers having  got out of hand.at Nottingham road.  CASE AGAINST THE YMIR MINE  Gun _'ighting Miners Dismissed.  Whatever else may be said of the evidence brought  out in  the prosecutions  against Allan and McNamara at Ymir, it  must be conceded that there  is  more to  be feared from lawlessness on the part of  the cheap laborers whom the management of the Ymir mine has  collected at  its property than froni any members  of  the Ymir Miners' Union.   To the circumstance that two of the Ymir company's  cheap miners came to Ymir, a  town five  miles from where they are employed, deliberately arming  themselves   with  revolvers, and then proceeding to  flourish  their weapons, must be added the statement of the miners themselves, that the  Ymir company  was  backing   them  up,  and that the  company would  see them  through any difficulty up to an expenditure of $100,000.    It is not so long since  a  special   train  was sent hurriedly from  Nelson with six special constables to protect the property of the  Ymir  company  from destruction on  the  part  of union  miners, who were reported as having an  intention to menace the   peace of our  .sovereign lady the queen by refusing to  sell  tlieir labor, for what the management of the Ymir mine was prepared to  pay.   The special constables came and  went,  but  no  breach  of the  peace oc-^  curred.    Now instead  of disorder at the  Ymir company's  mine, there is lawlessness in the town of Ymir, and the Ymir  company's employees who created it announce    that   the   company   is  behind  them and would see them   through  any  trouble, with  an  expenditure  if  necessary of $100,000.    These are  facts, but it  appears that the government  which was  so keen to prevent  possible  disorder on  the part of'-union miners lias not evinced  the same anxiety to punish  actual lawlessness  on  the  part   of  employees    of  the Ymir company.  The evidence forthe prosecution, briefly  told, was that McNamara and Allan came  down from the Ymir mine on the 16th  instant. That McNamar.-vgot a revolver  which he had cached in Dave Keefe's  hotel, and purchased a second one from  J. Masterson of the Cosmopolitan, hotel,  which belonged to Frank Britton, a member of''the'miners', union.  Pat Daly testified that he was at  Keefe's hotel when McNamara and Allan  arrived there from the Ymir mine, and  saw the proprietor hand over McNauiara's  revolver. They then said something  about taking in the town. He saw both  men at Keefe's the following afternoon,.  when they came into the hotel flourishing revolvers in their hands. They said  --that they were al! right, and that the  company " was backing them up with  $3000, and $100,000 if they needed it."  Keefe asked them if their revolvers-were *  loaded, and McNamara replied that if  he did not think they were loaded they  would show him, whieh they did.  Thomas McQueen was also at Keefe's  hotel when McNamara and Allan were  there with their revolvers. He said he  heard Allan say in reply'r to some question that his gun was loaded up to the  neck. He also heard Keefe caution the  men against flourishing their weapons  about for fear that they should shoot  i children.  j David Keefe's evidence corroborated  that of the other men with respect to  what oucutred in his house. He testified  to having given McNamara his gnu on  the night of the 16th, and that on the  following day both McNamara and Allan  came into his hotel with guns. MeNa- j  mam said they were heeled to tho teeth.  He also said that he was not afraid of  anyone, and that he had $3000 to back  him up itvthei*e~was~any trouble. Keefe  -.aid he got the revolvers from them and  kept them behind the bar for about thirty  minutes, when McNamara said they  wanted their guns as they were going  down town. McNamara put his gun in  a scabbard on hi-*-* right side, and Allan  put his in his pocket, Keefe's opinion of  the actions oi* McNamara and Allan was  that they wore on tho point of committing nome depredation.  Tlie evidence of constable Forrester, >-.o  far as it referred to the conduct of the  union miners of Yinir was highly creditable to them. He heard of the row iu  the Cosmopolitan bur, and on the following day he arrested McNamara upon a  charge of carrying a pistol without justification. When he searched McNamara  he found a 3S-caliber revolver in a belt  upon his right side. Six chambers of the  revolver were loaded. Constable Forrester stated that with special constable  McLeod he was responsible for  tenance of order in the town,  of the town was good. There  no disturbances, save a few  squabbles or fights, since the  shooting case, in which the Nelson shoemaker figured. Constable Forrester said  that McNamara had spoken to him on  the night of the 10th about protection.  McNamara .said that he was working at  the Ymir mine and that he wanted Forrester to look after him and not let any  of tho fellows hurt him.  Great interest was taken in the case by  the people of Ymir, the Miners' Union  hall, where the hearings took place, being  well filled. The justices dismissed both  cases.  ���'".i-Si*.|  SEP  y*2-,'.-*pi.  the main-  The order  had been  drunken  Maslonka  Trootis Sail From Bermuda.

When mine owners  are allowed  to swear  in special constables at will,  ifc     means    either     that     the   government   is   unable   to   enforce    the    law  or     willing   that     the     law-enforcing  department   of   the government  should  be  surrendered   to  private   individuals.  The Tribune maintains that the government should see that  the  laws are  enforced without fear  or  favor.    It does  not   believe    tliat    justices-of-the-peace  should be allowed to swear in special  constables   at   the  nod  of   private   individuals. **��� It does 'not believe that tlie  government should give any interest or  set of men special protection 'because of  a willingness of  tlie  specially, protected  interest or individual to bear   the expense; .which merely means that the force  powerrof the government shall alone be  used  for ihe benefit  of the class that  have money. If the wealthy combination  of mine owners whose headquarters are  at Nelson  and  Sandon  have the right  under the law to send out agents to hire  men for less than the rate prevailing in  Kootenuy, surely it is no breach of the  law for the agents of the miners' unions  to prevent tlie men so brought in from  going  to  work, provided  they  use  the  same methods as arc used by  the  agents  of the mine owners, that is, moral suasion.  The agent of the mine owners, it is .said,  always   misrepresents   the   actual   conditions prevailing in  tlie Slocan and at  Xelson in order to secure  the jnen they  bring in.    Then is it unfair that the men  So brought in bhould be allowed to hear  the mine workers' side of the  Has any  government in  any  little town of .Ymir'by making gun plays,  and J.

Roderick and his lawyer would have asked that tlie town of  Ymir be placed under martial law, and  troops would ere this have been dispatched from Nelson to overawe the rebellious miners. Guns and bludgeons in  the hands of union miners mean lawlessness ; guns and bludgeons in tlie hands of  non-union minors mean self-protection.  "Brave Bill" Anthony Dead.  New York, November 24.���William  Anthony, better known as " Brave Bill "  Anthony, died at the Presbyterian hospital this afternoon, half an Hour after  he had swallowed a quantity of cocoaine.  William Anthony was the man, who on  February 15th, 1898, when the battleship  Maine was blown up in Havana harbor,  reported to captain Sigsbee in the words:  " Sir, I have the honor to report that the  ship has been blown up, and is sinking."  On his return to this country, Anthony  was accorded receptions everywhere. He  received many invitations from cities to  be their guest. For months he travelled  over the country being accorded the  honors of a hero. In one of Anthony's  coat pockets was found a letter written  by him to his aunt, which read that he  was discouraged and disconsolate and  was going to end it all. Among tlie  articles found were a picture of his one  month's old child, on the baekjof which  was Avritten, "Bury this with me."  Irregular Troops Highly Praised.  Queenstown, Cape Colony, November  24.���There is remarkable enthusiasm  among troops over general Gatacre's success of last Sunday, advising his men to  watch the irregulars, as they understood  the country, and to note what kind of  people they were dealing with. The  irregulars regard the advice as a tribute  to their usefulness, and have had several  thousand copies of it printed.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  ig*  "_.<=__��� ��2;_  m  W  ���*-?-��*: *.

One  of the  instances cited i.s   the   freight  rates  between Rossland and Ymir, a*, compared  with the  freight rates  between  Xelson  aud Ymir.    The  Record  says  tlie rates  should be the same.    As Ymir L. 17 miles  from Xelson and HO miles from liossland,  the rates aie not likely to be the same  for awhile.    Tho Record does not, in this  connection, .say anything as to why the  Dominion   government   has seen   fit to  discriminate against Nelson in favor of  Rossland in postal facilities.

This  is a discrimination  that is so unfair and  unjust that no one  but a  postal official  would be guilty of making it.

CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID  THE    CLIMATE    OF    SOUTH    APP.IOA.  Observations of the weather lias:. been  systematically.made for many years in  South Africa, and. in. Cape Colony the,  meteorological conditions have been as  carefully and completely, studied as in  England. <. Iu other parts, however, the  observations are far less satisfactory, and  in the -Transvaal observations may be  said scarcely to exist, our knowledge-, of  the weather changes being extremely  meagre.  Some few years ago' the "Report of the'  Meteorological'Commission' at the Cape  of Good Hope" embodied detailed rainfall  maps for each month, showing the distribution of the rain in different parts of  South Africa. The average results for  the year show that, -witli the exception  of a small area in the immediate vicinity  of Cape Town, the total rainfall for the  year is almost wholly below, twenty  inches; that is, considerably less than in  London, in most places the average for  the year is less than ten inches, aud at  some stations it falls as low as five inches  for,the whole twelve months.  FULL LINE OF  Is r*ow prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atliq, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^on, District.  In the Orange Free State  the  average  rainfall  for  the year  is about twenty  inches.    The winter rains are very small,  the aggregate.for a month  being  only a  few tenths of an  inch  on  the average.  With the commencement of the southern  summer the rains increase, although it is  not until November and December  that  the average fall for  the month exceeds  an inch, and even  in  those months the  rainfall in many places is only 0.3 inch or  0.4   inch.      In   January,  February  and  March the average in  the Orange Free  State i.s four or five inches in each month.  The meagre '-returns for the Transvaal  show that in 1890 the rainfall eight miles  east of Johannesburg was practically nil  in July, August and September, while in  October the rainfall wtis 5.77 inches, which  was the wettest month of the "year, and  rain fell on, eleven days.    In both November and December the rainfall in the vicinity   of  Johannesburg   exceeded   five  inches, and the total number of days with  rain during the  year was sixty-one.    In  the Orange Free State tlie results for 1890  show that there wasra practically no rain  in September,  but iu Oetober the rains  were fairly heavy, and  the Basutoland  September is also,exceedingly dry.

Yesterday the Miner published a ear-  toon that was so refined and delicate in  delineation, that those that have appeared  in The Thibuxe are vulgarly coarse in  comparison.  ,11. F. Tolmie, secretary of the Silver-  Lead Mines Association of Sandon, was  in tlie Boundary last week trying to induce the mine owners in that prosperous  section of the province to go on strike in  sympathy with the members of his  association. He met with no encouragement, and is now in Nelson lamenting his  luck in being connected with so unpopular an organization.  Complaint is made by wholesale produce houses in Nelson of the unfair competition of the Dominion Express Company. It is claimed that the express  company brings in all kinds of produce  from the east and peddles it out in Koote-,  nay, always at prices below, those quoted  by the local wholesalers. They claim  that if the express company is allowed  to peddle merchandise, the city should  see that they take out a peddler's license.  A chimney fire in the residence of Mrs.  Chittick on Arictoria street, near Hen-  dryx. was the occasion of a fire alarm  last evening. The fire was extinguished  without damage before the members of  the department arrived with tlie Bab-  cocks.    The members of the Owen Smily Concert Company, who appear this evening  in concert under the auspices of the  ladies' hospital aid, arrived in Nelson yesterday and are registered at the Phair.  The proceeds of the entertainment will  go toward furnishing the addition to the  general hospital.

The miners'  union, says the Phoenix News, endeavored to get a room for a sick member,  but were unsuccessful, and had to be content with a cot in the hallway of one of  the hotels, and a 'phone from a hospital  at Greenwood brought the information  that the patient would be treated at the  rate of $0 per day. As the sick beuefit  to members of the union is $10 a week, it  was impossible for that body to take advantage of the $70 per week offer of the  hospital authorities. The miners at Phoenix should do as did the miners of Sandon, build aud run their own hospital.  The miners' union of Sandon, which has  a membership of over 500, offered the  owner of a private hospital at New  Denver the same monthly fee as was paid  by the mining companies. The mining  companies collected $1 a month from  their men, paid the New Denver hospital  owner 50 cents, and kept the other 50  cents. The miners' union offered to do  business on the same basis, but the offer  was refused. They then built tlieir own  hospital, and it is said to be one of the  best conducted hospitals in the province.  Does Not Mix Politics With Mining.  J. B. McArthur of Columbia, president  of the Bambler-Cariboo Mining Company,  arrived in Nelson yesterday from Boss-  land.
